Subject Matter

Physics deals with the study of inorganic nature. It provides the fundamental science for other natural sciences and numerous engineering sciences. Two typical and complementary aspects characterize its access to the understanding of nature: On the one hand, natural phenomena are quantitatively analyzed in experiments; on the other hand, the observed laws are formulated in mathematical “language”. From these models (“theory”), further projections are made in a wider field of application and are re-examined in experiments.

Due to the significance of physics for the sustainability of society, highly qualified physics lessons at the schools of further education are essential. Well-trained teachers are an indispensable part of this. At the University of Mainz, students on the teacher training course are ready to take the first State Examination for Teaching at Secondary Schools in 10 semesters.
